Fox’s on demand streaming service Fox Nation excitedly announced network star Sean Hannity will begin hosting his own program on its platform — but there’s a big catch.
- “Fox Nation … will present a brand new weekday program entitled ‘Hannity On Air,’ hosted by Fox News Channel primetime powerhouse Sean Hannity, announced John Finley, senior vice president of development and production,” reads the first line of a press release Fox sent out Wednesday afternoon.
- The show will be available as a standalone offering on Fox Nation starting at 3 p.m. eastern every weekday starting Jan. 30, the statement goes on.
- The catch (and how’s this for burying the lede)? It’s just a broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show “The Sean Hannity Show” — and only the opening “monologue” segment at that, according to the release.
- While Fox Nation features a variety of original short and long form original video programming, the service does not offer live video streams of the cable channel.
- Instead, subscribers do get access to audio-only streams of Fox News programs — and on a delay until after they air.
